This solo piano transcription of Queen’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is incredibly moving.
Pianist Luke Faulkner recorded this gorgeous version of ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ in Rockfield Studios, Monmouth, where Queen recorded the original track in 1975.
The solo piano arrangement, which omits the second verse, is beautifully lyrical.
It isn’t often that pop-rock songs translate so well into solo piano music, but this guy makes it work. Particular appreciation for that glissando at 2:17.
